Health issues and exciting news

Weight lost: 41,6 kilo (91,7 lbs)

It has been quiet here for a while so it feels like it’s about time for an update. It has been a month since my gallbladder has been removed and I am glad that it’s gone. I don’t have to deal with that pain anymore which makes me feel much better. It doesn’t make me any healthier though, but I bet that my gallbladder removal has nothing to do with that. I need to share some things with you all, so here goes…

The new year has started and I have got some exciting news to share. We are expecting a baby! Yes, I am pregnant after gastric bypass surgery. Nine weeks and five days to be exact. I know that it is a tiny bit to soon after my RNY gastric bypass, but we’re really happy about it. On January 5 I have had the first ultrasound and there was a tiny heartbeat. I was really scared, because having surgery while knowing you’re pregnant is not what you want.

Ever since I know I am pregnant, I haven’t been healthy. First I got a throat inflammation and now I have been dealing with the flu since Monday. On top of that I am super tired. I know deep in my heart that I wasn’t healthy when I was fat, but was I sick this often? I can’t remember. Maybe I was… I hope that I will feel better soon so that I can actually start enjoying the fact that I am pregnant without being worried all the time.

My weight loss is a whole different story. Before my gallbladder removal my weight had stalled for a couple of weeks and as soon as I was recovering, I lost 2,5 kilo. Not ideal, because they had told me not to lose any more weight during my pregnancy. Now I have lost another 2,5 kilo. I am not sure if they will come back, because that is what happens when you’ve got the flu right? You lose weight easily, but then it’s back before you know it. I feel kind of weak, so maybe gaining 1 or 2 kilo would not be such a bad thing. We shall see. I guess my body knows what’s best for her? I know I should have some confidence in my own body.

I started this blog last year to keep everyone updated on my weight loss journey and now I should not lose weight. I am not even sure how to do that, because it seems to happen all of a sudden. I mean, I am still sticking to the diet of course, even though I am trying to eat more carbs because the baby needs them. I guess I will just stick to what they tell me and we will see what will happen.

This will probably mean less blogs from me on this blog… But you are always welcome to read my English (book) blog or my Dutch blog if you want, for updates on the baby/pregnancy and the rest of my life!
